Arthur Marshall, a premier contractor in Newport, RI, in the late 1970's, decided to build a post and beam home on this site here at Memorial Boulevard West. He purchased an abandoned 1730's home in Massachusetts and moved it to what is now 44-46 Memorial Blvd. West. He rebuilt it to modern construction specifications while retaining its 18th century integrity such as its wide pine floors, moldings, fireplace surrounds, and stone end. This iconic property, very visible as you come up from the Newport Harbor front towards Bellevue and beyond, has a relatively new cedar roof with a massive stone chimney jutting out that absorbs the seven working wood burning fireplaces. The main house has four floors of living space-- from the lower level to the third floor. There is a a legal separate unit with its own entrance and expansion space in the lower level as well including its own fireplace. This two family could be converted by right into a condominium if you only wanted ownership of part of this building. Given its history, charm and multi-unit status, it is an intriguing house and a truly wonderful opportunity for someone to provide its next restoration. The house has significant deferred maintenance and will require many upgrades. It is being sold "as is". This is an estate sale so no disclosures. The property is vacant. Any offers will need to be approved by the Probate Court. It is easy to show.
